SHILOH TRAINING CENTER
A ministry of World Mission
What is the Shiloh Training Center?
World Mission recognizes one of the greatest needs to complete the Great Commission rests in the development and preparation of leaders. Pastors and Trainers who are thoroughly equipped for the work of the ministry. Those who can produce disciples!
2 Timothy 3:16-17 16All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for instruction, for conviction, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, fully equipped for every good work.
The Shiloh Training Center will be a location where National Leaders can raise up and groom future pastors. The trainings are led by experienced local leaders with a passion and vision to raise up the next generation of discipleship makers.
Why is the vision of the Shiloh Center necessary?
There are millions of pastors in the world today trying to lead without ever having access to quality training. Specifically, in the region of the world where World Mission focuses (the 10/40 Window) it is estimated that there are 5 million pastors with no access to any kind of formal training.
"There is an average of 178,000 people coming to Christ daily around the world. Seven thousand new church leaders are needed daily to care for the growing church. Eight-five percent of the churches of the world are led by people who have no formal training in theology or ministry. Leaders from every non-Western region say their number one need is leadership training.” (Serving with Eyes Wide Open, David Livermore, P. 41)
The Shiloh Training Center will become a regional location in which pastors and leaders can gain access to critical training to help them grow in their ability to disciple others.
How does World Mission select Shiloh Center locations?
The Shiloh vision originates from the field. As a result, World Mission responds to the requests from their large network of National Leaders. Generally speaking, a Shiloh Center location will be a place in which other trainings opportunities are not viable, very difficult or simply non-existent. As soon as one of World Mission’s National Partners makes the request and states a compelling case for creating a Shiloh Center, a project is initiated.
To date, World Mission has 3 Shiloh Center locations in cooperation with our partners on the ground. Eastern Congo, Nepal and Senegal.
